Tallygaroopna is a small rural kinder with a real community connection. It Boast a large spacious yard with interesting areas to meet all children’s desires.

Relationships with children and families are a priority, with families actively involved with the centre.

Children thrive off the choice of an indoor/outdoor program and having the choice and freedom to move between the spaces as they require for their own led learning and development.

We even have some much loved and cared for chooks that roam around during the day and are tended to by the children.

All of our educators hold qualifications ranging from Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education, Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Bachelor of Early Childhood.

Service Commitment

At Tallygaroopna Children’s Centre we believe that our children learn and thrive best through a fun, play based program that offers open-ended experiences, and promotes exploration and wonder.

Learning is of interest to our children, families and community. School readiness is promoted through developing independence and autonomy. What’s important to our children, family and community is that children are seen as individuals in a holistic manner, they are guided and supported in their interests and potential; with their safety and care being of the top priority.

The role of our educators is to nurture, support, guide and challenge children in their learning and development, with relationships being our number one priority.
Our environment aims to ensure children and families feel safe, secure and supported. With input from all stakeholders welcomed.
